, of course nominating president obama for a second term, but tonight we heard from the star of the show, first lady, michelle obama. we'll show you the first lady, and the speeches, take a look. >> serving as your first lady is an honor and a privilege. but back when we first came together four years ago, i still had some concerns about this journey we had started. while i believed deeply in my husband's vision for this country, and i was certain he would make an extraordinary president, like any mother, i was worried about what it would mean for our girls if he got that chance. how will we keep them grounded under the glare of the national spotlight? how would they feel being unrooted from their school, their friends and the only home they had ever known? see, our life before moving to washington was filled with simple joys. saturdays at soccer games. sundays at grandmother's house. and a date night for barack obama and me was either date, dinner or a movie, because i couldn't stay awake for both. and the truth is, i loved the life we had built for our girls. and i deeply loved the man
last night, it's disgraceful that the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our top plow our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those who wage attacks. at the point that the cairo embassy had issued their statements, there had been no attacks. a protest was gathering. but after romney issued that statement last night, it was confirmed that, in fact, the ambassador in libya was killed. now, all of this happened and romney is publicly criticized for jumping the gun on issuing his statement before he even knew what the heck was going on. so what does he do? he doubles down on the wrongful criticism of the president. >> romney: a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values that instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached that the first response to the united states must be outrage at breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> jennifer: unbelievable. the president did, in fact, express outrage of the facts. romney did it before he had the facts. he said, quote he strongly condemned the attack. the president had cho
both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now, today the president was again selling his policies and his record in a state he says has benefitted from the auto bailout. he talked about the thousands of jobs created but also hit china and went after his gop opponent. >> he's been talking tough on china. he says he's going to take the fight to them. he's going to go after these cheaters. and i've got to admit, that message is better than what he's actu
. president obama's acceptance speech. bill clinton certainly set the stage last night with a powerful rousing address. now it's up to president obama to deliver. and what he says here just a few hours from now could have a huge impact on whether he gets another four years in the white house. so we're just moments away from the day's opening gavel. you'll see it all here unfolding live. president obama says he'll share his vision for the future tonight. and his aides say he'll offer some concrete proposals at the same time. but what does he need to say in this crucial appearance, gloria borger, candy crowley are both here. the challenge for him, we know he's a great order, there will be poetry and pros and all of that, but the country wants some substance as well. >> yeah. i think president obama needs to convince the country that he can fix the economy, period. there's a lot of disaffected, disappointed democrats out there who are watching this convention, who watched mitt romney's convention. and they want somebody who can improve their lives. and i think the case has been made about the pas
in front of president obama? you're going to find out in a matter of a few seconds. plus, one hour from now the democratic national convention formally kicks off. tonight, the president's most powerful political weapon takes center stage. and with the enthusiasm building here in the convention hall, republicans are already pouncing. they're seizing on the grade the president gives himself for improving the economy. i'm wolf blitzer in charlotte, north carolina. and you're in "the situation room." >>> this just coming into "the situation room." we want to get straight to our brand new cnn/orc polls on the state of the race for the white house on this the heels of the republican national convention in tampa. take a look at this. an actual tie. mitt romney and president obama both at 48% among likely voters. romney gets post-convention boost of just one percentage point while president obama has dipped one percentage point. our chief national correspondent, john king, is over the magic wall along with democratic poster peter hart with a very first look at the numbers. john, a statistical margi
losing jobs. but it's not enough. wolf, in fairness to the obama administration, we have created jobs in the private sector, which is where you want them created, for 30 months in a row. the trend is correct. this just isn't a big enough number. >> they did revise the previous two months to show that 40,000 jobs they thought had been created really weren't. isn't that right? >> that's correct. so every month we get revisions to the two prior months. in this case they were revisions lower. what that means is if president obama were to want to claim that he has made up for all the job losses since the day he took office, he needs another 260,000 jobs created in th next two months. there will be two more jobs reports before the election, the last one will be four days before the election. it's a milestone that doesn't matter to most people. and if you're unemployed it certainly doesn't matter to you. but it will give him the ability to say i inherited the worst economy since the eat depression and i made up for you can bee they achie ch. that, it will be a nice democratic ad the weekend
earlier arguing president obama missed his chance to get the economy back on track. >> when he came in, he came in with one party rule. president obama and his party controlled everything. the obama economic agenda did not fail because it was stopped, it failed because it was passed. >> today we also learned who congressman ryan's debate practice partner will be. there he is. ted olson. former solicitor general under president george w. bush. he will be playing the role of joe biden in mock debates. congressman ryan and vice president biden will face off just one time three weeks from now. meanwhile, the obama campaign is out with a new ad today. it's a response to governor romney who has been asking americans if they are better off now than they were four years ago. >> here's where we are today. 30 months of private sector job growth. creating 4.6 million new jobs. we're not there yet, but the real question is whose plan is better for you. the president's plan asks millionaires to pay a little more, to help invest in a strong middle class. >> we'll have more on these stories coming up. pr
remarks from democrats and even some republicans feel was a major mistake. accusing president obama of making americans dependent on government. also, giving a chance to hit back. president obama holds his fire. we're digging into what his strategy might be. and just off the assembly line our brand new poll from one of the states that potentially could decide the presidential election. john king is on the ground in michigan with the latest numbers. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with the brand new counteroffensive mitt romney's launching only 48 days before the presidential election. instead of trying to explain away his secretly videotaped complaint that the 47% of u.s. voters who support president obama are dependent on government, romney's trying to turn the controversy to his political advantage. our national political correspondent jim acosta is covering romney's latest stop in atlanta. >> reporter: wolf, mitt romney is now owning his message that too many americans are dependent on the government. he's trying to parlay a gift he received from th
